It’s time for the Heart of Oklahoma Basketball Tournament!

The tournament begins today (Thursday) and concludes Saturday.

There will be lots of great basketball, so make plans to attend and social distance.

All the brackets and a complete list of competitors is on the sports page.


Make plans now to join the Purcell Public Library via Zoom for a Virtual Book Program from 7-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 9.

The February discussion will be held on the book Educated by Tara Westover.

This is a virtual program and registration with an email address is required. A confirmation email will be sent with a link to join the program via Zoom.

Copies of the book can be picked up at the Purcell Public Library.


The Purcell Public Library and the Pioneer Library System invites readers to take part in its initiative “A Healthier You” to get 2021 off to a positive start. 

The initiative runs through the end of April and features health-related activities that customers can engage in on their own schedules. It looks into both physical and mental health through a variety of activities. 

After signing up, participants can access the themes and individual activities for each month. They can earn a virtual badge by completing at least seven of each month’s activities. 

In addition, librarians have put together book lists to accompany the initiative’s activities. These feature topics like meal planning, exercise, mindfulness, financial health and other aspects of daily life.   

Find out more about these services and the “A Healthier You” initiative through the PLS web site, www.pioneerlibrarysystem.org.
